SANTA CRUZ, California (WABC) -- A first date came to a surprising end when a woman's date collapsed on a beach from a heart attack, and she had to save him.
56-year-old Max Montgomery was surfing in Calfornia when he felt a burning sensation in his chest and became exhausted.
He got out of the water and suddenly fell over.
Luckily his date Andi Traynor is a doctor and she immediately started performing CPR.
A nurse who happened to be walking by also jumped into help.
Montgomery underwent bypass surgery. He's fine and he and Traynor are still dating, ten months later.
